Wow. I never thought about this. Can anyone comment if increasing the armhole is possible or is it more of the ladder?
I would imagine that you could increase the armhole by however much inlay is remaining in the sleevehead. It's probably not much though.

I get where you're coming from, but the majority of S&M's customers are not #menswear geeks. Didn't I read that S&M is not going to offer their Neapolitan cut in RTW suits (only MTO) because they didn't sell well? If they can't sell that to their mainstream customers, forget trying to sell gurkha trousers to them.
I think you mean peak lapel suits will be MTM only, not Neapolitan.

I don't need mainstream RTW gurkhas, but a pattern for MTM would be nice. Otherwise, I'll keep heading to Spain for mine.

Hate to break up a healthy Gurkha discussion, but does anyone have sizing advice on the chukkas?

Is there a current SF discount code? Or specific to trousers/shirts.

There is a new code for RTW and MTM shirts: shirts20

20% off shoes too.

My size RTW shirts virtually all gone. 1 blue fine twill left in my size. Whites, pinks, checks, stripes... all SO
Certainly can be frustrating, which is why I recently placed an order with a competitor MTM for some casual flannels.

Still, I am going to order a popover MTM right now and maybe my first ocbd.
